When Love and her Mother Whelped we used pee pads... The thing you put in baby beds when they wet the bed... It like a blanket buts its gotta rubber bottem to keep liquid in. I used them up till about 5 weeks of age then I used saw dust. We bought several pee pads so when one got wet we just changed it. But try as we might Lovie would get to their poop before we did... It was a loosing battle. She would still try to "clean up" after them at 8 weeks (YUCK) Love was a great mommy she weaned the puppies herself.
unluckly she hated her whelping box and chose my closet only to desert it and Whelp on my bed. Good thing I woke up and slid a pad under her.... it could have got messy!!!!

Believe me... this wouldn't have worked with my Goldens !!! Besides, we didn't have pee-pads back then. I would NEVER use saw dust !

I know what you mean saw dust or wood chippings are a huge no no, they stick to the puppy's they puppy's could choke on them and also its bad for their respiratory health

I only used saw dust when they were older in their outdoor run.. when I had them out to play. It was to keep the ticks and flees away. cedar is known to keep flees and ticks away. I did not use them when they are new born. I did not use it indoors either.
